limbaugh. >> now, there are people that don't like it, even on the republican side because it has tax increases in it, some say tax increases on the rich. leaves some of obama's tax increases in it. heritage foundation has done deep analysis of this. one of their problems with the ryan budget is, and they do have problems with it, is that hefty tax increases of obama's are maintained. they're kept in it. they're not done away with. >> paul ryan's budget leaves in the increase in top income tax rate that president obama achieved in january, the conservative blog red state noted the ryan budget leaves in 1 trillion in tax revenue in president obama's health care reform bill, including taxes on tanning salons and high value health care plans, which provoked erick erickson to question whether house republicans should even vote for it. since paul ryan's budget keeps the obama care tax revenue stream, isn't voting for his budget a violation of the repeal pledge? and in an interview with cnbc, paul ryan could not continue to pretend his budget choices had any attachment to reality. >> in ter

these knuckleheads? orregard to taxing the rich cutting out loopholes, everybody in this country gets some form of entitlement in one shape or form. i don't understand why because i get a paycheck and somebody else makes their money through investments or a different way, why i am taxed more. if you earn money, you get taxed on it the same as everybody else. i do not agree with that at all. and i don't understand why we have to give tax subsidies to corporations that do not need it. why on earth does the oil company need our money? why does the agriculture business need our money? you are making enough money. cut out the tax loopholes and we can get out of this mess. host: we are covering the cpac conference and there are a number of ways you can watch and listen. depending on what the house yesterday, we will be live with the house this morning, once the house recesses, the cpac coverage can be seen on this network. you can also listen on c-span radio and wanted anytime on our website, also be a location to what some of the conferences that get underway this morning. some other com

under control. potentially. but listen to this. the democratic budget calls for $1 trillion in tax increases over the next 10 years. how are you going to grow an economy with that? and every working american is going to pay some of those taxes. let me ask you, let me ask you this. are you already not paying taxes through the roof? i am. property tax, sales tax, gas tax, state tax, city of new york tax, federal income tax, and almost everything i do in my leash time, rental cars, hotels, planes, all taxed as well. and the democrats want to add another trillion dollars in taxes? so we're quickly becoming sweden which has the highest tax rate in europe. u.s. corporate tax is already the highest in the world, already. and there is no doubt president obama wants to raise them even further. so, again, is this a sound economic policy? is this going to grow the economy in the u.s.a.? is it? finally, the president and the democratic party have failed to tell the american people exactly what programs they will cut in the future, if anymore. once again, there is no specific entitlement reform

revenues through taxes in this budget. it's about $1.5 trillion in new tax revenue on top of the $600 billion in higher taxes earlier this year. that is on top of the more than $1 trillion in obamacare taxes. >> neil: and that doesn't balance anything? >> this is blueprint for what the president wants and what all democrats want, that higher taxes, more taxes and they are going to spend until the bond market says, hold it. you can't spend. >> neil: what do you think? >> i just think it's fascinating you put a time stamp on this. like ten years, it's way out there in the future. ten years comes pretty quick. what is scary about this the media let them get away with it. obama sounds smart but when you strip down what he says, it's actually pretty stupid. there is rationality we can still set sel our debt because everyplace else is screwed up but to suggest ten years we're going to have a problem and that is not coming in relative terms tomorrow is stupid. you want to give the president respect, but his statement was stupid. >> neil: adam, you agree with that, i guess? >> actually i don'

indicated around incentivizing small businesses, 0-25, but offering them tax credits to make the cost of coverage from the employer's perspective more affordable. >> okay, great, thank you. >> commissioner o'brien. >> would you say in your opinion, that there is a lot of overlap between the two programs? i mean i'm trying to see if the health care act is left in case, which is obviously going to be the place and the other option was taken out, the health security, would that leave a wide slot or section of people that are vulnerable and not covered that wouldn't fall under the umbrella of the affordable care act? i'm trying to -- it's extremely complicated and we're finding out it's going to take a lot of work to research how these programs work on their own first, and then between each other. and i was wondering would it be easier to amend one of them to sort of just be adjusted to fill in the gaps of the care act that doesn't cover it? so that it would be easish to manage the whole thing? would time be sent better trying to engineer it that way, then trying to evolve both of
